What is the EB-5 Program?

The EB-5 Program allows Immigrant Investors and their families to obtain US Permanent Resident Status (a 'green card'), and later US Citizenship, through investing in US companies which create or preserve at least ten (10) US jobs per investment. Green card holders can live, work, and retire anywhere in the United States.


Originally, the program required participants to invest USD $1,000,000 into a company which created 10 jobs in the US, and which they were required to actively manage. Now, the vast majority of EB-5 participants are able to invest passively through a Regional Center such as CARC. A Regional Center (RC) is a private, targeted investment program within a defined geographic region which is managed on behalf of its investors, and which creates or preserves jobs that can be attributed to its investors in accordance with the EB-5 Program. RCs can count either the creation or preservation of jobs towards the 10 jobs required for the EB-5 Program. In addition, if the investment in a regional center is made within a Targeted Employment Area (TEA), such as the areas where CARC's projects are located, then the minimum investment may be reduced to USD $500,000. People who invest with a regional center and get a green card as a result of such investment may live, work, and retire anywhere in the United States, regardless of the location of their regional center.

As a Regional Center approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), CARC will utilize a USCIS-approved job-creation methodology to confirm that our investors meet the EB-5 Program's employment requirements. In addition, CARC's two exciting projects will be managed by our expert team of real estate professionals, who are intimately familiar with these markets. Finally, since CARC's projects are not dependent on EB-5 financing to start or finish, and does not intend to rely primarily on any fixed number of EB-5 investors, our projects are much more likely to produce the jobs investors need for their EB-5 applications than EB-5 projects whose sole source of funds is EB-5 investment.
